An adult entertainer who allegedly threatened to publish tax officials’ personal details has been made the subject of an injunction barring her from disclosing such information.
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) secured the High Court injunction on Friday against Amy Spencer, an Only Fans model, and her adviser to halt their alleged campaign of harassment against officials investigating tax affairs.
HMRC claims Miss Spencer and Dr Robert Milton, her accountant, threatened to upload the details to the internet, along with “false allegations” that could “provoke hostility towards them”.
Its lawyers claim that the pair threatened to use “tracing agents” and surveillance to obtain officers’ home addresses, dates of birth and other information, causing the civil servants “alarm and distress”.
According to officials, they engaged in “unreasonable and oppressive” behaviour in order to persuade officials to drop investigations into their tax affairs.
Miss Spencer and Dr Milton did not attend the hearing but have denied wrongdoing and blame the glamour model’s fans, HMRC’s legal team said.
High Court judge Richard Spearman KC renewed a temporary injunction against the pair, preventing them from releasing HMRC officers’ information and requiring them to disclose what personal details they may have shared with others.
Kate Wilson, representing HMRC, said in written arguments that Miss Spencer’s and Dr Milton’s alleged behaviour was linked to an investigation into one of her companies. The barrister said that Miss Spencer and her adviser could not explain how their claim that the model “owed only £3,000 in unpaid taxes, fits with her receipt of the equivalent of £404,225.40 from her OnlyFans activities between November 2018 and March 2021”.
Miss Spencer and Dr Milton are accused of threatening to film tax officials serving papers or attending court to obtain images “to identify them publicly on a website targeting them”, and attempting to obtain CCTV images.
Ms Wilson said they had also threatened to publish officers’ personal information online “together with false and serious allegations” about their alleged “mistreatment” of Miss Spencer.
